The turn to materiality as an increasingly important element of the study of the Middle Ages both emerges from and responds to a range of intellectual and epistemological trends over the last forty years or so. One field which might provide fertile ground for the centering of such questions is precisely that of digital textual editing, both because of advances in the theory of critical editing and because the digital mode may offer alternative spaces to accommodate material aspects of manuscript culture to those of printed editions. In what follows then, I aim to review what digital critical editing of iberomedieval works has done so far, and what the future might hold for materiality in digital iberomedievalism.
